  • Cybill Roman says:

    Im so dissapointed in this post dr oz you should know better smh specially being a dr you know these children going back to school cant be inhaling their own exhaled carbo dioxide. It makes me so sad what the world has come to did people forget they had an immune system Do Not Wear a mask your putting yourself at risk to lowering your immune system then you will be more at risk

  • LA K. says:

    If you’re that vulnerable, stay home or wear a mask. Leave me and my freedoms alone. Tired of it. So you have to wear a mask entering the restaraunt, but not when you’re sitting? What happened to the whole stay 6 feet away. If I’m 6 feet away from you I shouldnt have to wear a mask right? Two words. Herd immunity. Hate me all u want. Yes, I know, I’ve seen. But it’s been 6 mos of this. No. I dont care. I’m healthy. If I get it, I’ll kick it. Either get healthy, or stay home.

    What a load of rubbish, masks are NOT proven to protect ANYONE from COVID
    Why the lies????

    • Maxine-Mivs says:

      @mmagi kämpfer TRUST ME my dear, your mask isn’t going to save you from the COVID virus,
      In fact, it won’t save you from any virus
      But if you want to wear one thinking it’s” saving you” be my guest….. I’m against the lies that say it will

    • Maxine-Mivs says:

      @mmagi kämpfer one not insulted you so kindly stop insulting me by calling me stupid…. Your old enough to know better

    • Maxine-Mivs says:

      @mmagi kämpfer where on any mask does it say it will protect you from a virus?
      Because they don’t want a lawsuit against them and that’s because they don’t protect you,
      It’s all media and government hype
      I would like the truth to be told and not what DR OZ has just proclaimed……its a bare face LIE

  • Darryl Micheals says:

    Try breathing with that for 8 hours

  • Sharon Frey says:

    Worthless! Who paid you to say that?

  • James Prentice says:

    The rest of us wear a mask because the general population is convinced that “Politicians” are more qualified than extremely qualified Doctors who are in the medical field (trenches) have stated over and over again that Covid 19 is just another “Flu” virus and they have identified at least three medicines (with zinc) that can prevent and or cure the effects of this “Flu.” Unfortunately the general population who HIRED (elected) these petty politicians wont get together and put a stop to this political suicide of America. Yes Mr. & Mrs. America you are the creators of the governments which makes YOU (collectively) the bosses of the Politicians but you dont get together and demand that they put a stop to it. The federal government does not run the States you do. The federal government runs the federal government territory which is D.C., all of the island possessions and enclaves that belong to the federal government such as Yosemite National Park, all of the Military Bases and other geographical locations where the federal government has acquired Jurisdiction.
    “The laws of Congress in respect to those matters do not extend into the territorial limits of the states, but have force only in the District of Columbia, and other places that are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national government.” [Caha v. United States 152 U.S. 211 (1894)]

    “Legislation of Congress, unless a contrary intent appears, is meant to apply only within territorial jurisdiction of the United States.” Foley Bros. v. Filardo, 336 U.S. 281; 69 S.Ct. 575 (1949)

    Title 4 USC, Section 72 (“All offices attached to the seat of government shall be exercised in the District of Columbia, and not elsewhere, except as otherwise expressly provided by law.”);

    “It is not the function of our government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.” — U.S. Supreme Court in American Communications Association v. Douds 339 U.S. 382, 442 (1950)

    The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government, least it comes to dominate our lives. < > Patrick Henry
    “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution”
– Abraham Lincoln (debating Stephen Douglas), 1858

    No. The box tells you it doesn’t stop viruses.

  • james goodman says:

    They make you sick ! Period! All in the plan!

  • Melanie Howd says:

    Masks do not do anything…in fact they can have far more negative impacts…I will not be muzzled!!!

  • E Paige Sergent says:

    A study is out that says if you take the flu shot you have a 36% higher risk of contracting COVID-19.
    It blew me away.
    I nearly died from the flu in the 90’s. I was young & very healthy. I’ve taken a flu vaccine ever since. It was very hard to find bc I’m allergic (dermatologist tested me) to a preservative that was widely used in vaccines until recently, thimerosal. I’d have to get an out of town pharmacy to special order me a thimerosal free flu shot & it was a major process for the store to find one.
    You better believe I won’t be taking another one!
    Nor a rushed COVID-19 vaccine!

    Immediately STOP this propaganda.
    Human beings weren’t designed to breathe in their own co2 for 8 to 14 hours a day! Sure in a hospital medical environment or Ageing care facility.That is a N95 medical grade mask.
    They don’t work it says it on every box of mask you buy at the store.
    It’s bull,
    It’s a false gaslighting narrative.
    Everyone is wearing them and coronavirus is still everywhere!!!

  • R C says:

    I wear a mask bc I’m literally in and out of the 1 or 2 places I visit daily, otherwise I wouldn’t wear one. Masks are not appropriate for people with certain medical conditions, yet they are pressured into wearing something that is harmful to them. We don’t get truthful and complete information on masks or anything else for that matter. Also according to one researcher in a Florida hospital, household transmission ratio is 10-50% for children and spouses, so even if you live with someone who has IT, it doesn’t mean you’re gonna get IT and getting it doesn’t mean you’re gonna die, unless you’re over 54 y/o with at about 2.6 serious underlying conditions.

    Sell out

  • CarolC says:

    doctor oz you know very well that it is against health to wear a muzzle ok so use it you and your family, most of us know that it is not healthy to wear masks. We are already well informed.

  • Green Without Borders - GWB says:

    Masks make us rebrearhe our polluted breath with more Co2 and less O2, also mixed with mask’s plastic component again and again.
    This toxicity reduce our immunity and make us get sick easier.
